According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service, exports of shell eggs in January 2010 were 3.8 million dozen, 45% higher than in January 2009.

They were valued at $3.07M (or about 80.3 cents per dozen). Sales of egg products approached 49 million, an increase of 9% over January 2009. Shipments to Japan and Mexico fell by almost 40%, but a marked increase in shipments to Canada and the European Union compensated for these losses.
